new Delhi. New records in cricket keep breaking and being made. But in a tournament like IPL, if a bowler bowls Maiden over, then it is surprising. But on Wednesday, runs were scored against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders (RCB Vs KKR). KKR’s batsmen were yearning for one run each. So two or two new records of maiden overs were made in the same innings. And played a key role in breaking this record by RCB fast bowler Mohammed Siraj. Let’s take a look at some unique records of this match
2 maiden overs: Mohammad Siraj became the first bowler in IPL history to bowl two maidens in a match. He bowled his first two overs. Apart from this, he took three wickets in these two overs. Which includes the wickets of Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana and Tom Bangton of KKR.
4 maiden overs: This was the first time in the history of IPL when 4 maid overs were bowled in an innings. RCB bowlers did this feat. Two maidens were bowled by Mohammad Siraj. While Chris Morris and Washington Sundar also scored a maiden over. Before IPL history, more than two maiden overs were bowled in an innings. Dot Balls: KKR batsmen played 72 dot balls. This is the second highest record of playing dot ball in the history of IPL. Earlier, KKR set the record of playing 75 dot balls against Chennai Super Kings. KKR is also at number three in this list. KKR played 57 dot balls in this IPL against Mumbai.
Mohammad Siraj took 3 wickets for just 8 runs. This is the most economical bowling of the current season (at least 12 balls). Interestingly, Siraj had an economy rate of 9.29 in the IPL. It was the worst economy rate among bowlers bowling at least 100 balls. But now Siraj has won everyone’s heart by bowling brilliantly.
